Culture of Empathy Builder:  Wendy Wood

 

Wendy Wood and Edwin Rutsch: How to Build a Culture of Empathy with Compassion Focused Therapy (CFT)

Wendy Wood is Senior Lecturer at the Mental Health and Therapeutic Practice Faculty of Education, Health and Sciences at University of Derby, UK.  Wendy is also Programme leader for the Compassion Focused Therapy programme.

"I worked within the NHS for 14 years as a Mental Health Nurse then as an assistant psychologist and then as a counsellor in primary care. I also worked for a year as a freelance trainer, therapist and clinical supervisor."

"Compassion focused therapy is a psychological approach that was originally developed to help people with high shame and self-criticism, and this course will introduce you to the basic ideas and interventions that are used. This course is for you if you are in a mental health profession, for example psychiatry, psychology, nursing or occupational therapy and you are trained to form and develop psychotherapeutic relationships. Also, if you have basic counselling and cognitive behavioural therapy skills and you would like to develop your skills when working with clients who experience shame and self-criticism thoughts, then this course is for you."
